Two men were run over by a train while they were busy taking a selfie on a railway track in Mirzapur near Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.

According to reports, Vinod Kumar and Jitendra Kumar, residents of Semara village in Chandauli, had gone to the Ram Navmi fair at Shivshankari Dham, Kailhat in Mirzapur.

After spending a couple of hours at the fair they walked along a railway track on which Brahmaputra Express approached them from behind.

The duo stood on the track to take a selfie with the approaching train in the background. Before they managed to click the picture, the speeding train crushed them to death.

Police recovered the identity card of one of the victims and their families were informed about the incident.
